systematic sampling

Popular Terms
A method of choosing a random sample from among a larger population. The process of systematic sampling typically involves first selecting a fixed starting point in the larger population and then obtaining subsequent observations by using a constant interval between samples taken. Hence, if the total population was 1,000, a random systematic sampling of 100 data points within that population would involve observing every 10th data point.
